Preparation of porous [alpha]-Fe[sub]2O[sub]3 thin films for efficient photoelectrocatalytic degradation of basic blue 41 dye
Manel Machreki, Takwa Chouki, Mitja Martelanc, Lorena Butinar, Branka Mozetič Vodopivec, Saim Emin, 2021, original scientific article

Abstract: A novel method was developed for the preparation of porous hematite (α-Fe2O3) thin films. First, a solution containing iron precursor was spin-coated on fluorine-doped tin oxide substrate and later short heat-treated at 750 °C. The prepared α-Fe2O3 thin films were applied as dual-function catalyst in photoelectrochemical (PEC) water oxidation and textile dye degradation studies. For the first time, α-Fe2O3 thin films were used in efficient PEC degradation of a textile dye (Basic Blue 41 – B41) using in-situ generated reactive chlorine species. In comparison with photocatalytic and electrocatalytic approaches, the PEC technique allows faster degradation of B41 dye at an applied bias potential of 1.5 V versus reversible hydrogen electrode and under visible light illumination. In the presence of Cl− using the PEC approach the degradation of B41 reaches 99.8%. High-performance liquid chromatography coupled with UV–VIS system confirmed the degradation of B41 dye using PEC. Gas-chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry was used to study the by-products obtained during PEC degradation. Chemical oxygen demand analyses confirmed that the mineralization level of B41 is in the order of 68%. The α-Fe2O3 films developed in this study give a higher level of PEC degradation efficiency compared to other iron oxide-based systems.

Growth of MoSe2 electrocatalyst from metallic molybdenum nanoparticles for efficient hydrogen evolution : Growth of MoSe2 electrocatalyst from metallic molybdenum nanoparticles for efficient hydrogen evolution
Takwa Chouki, Boriana Donkova, Burhancan Aktarla, Plamen Stefanov, Saim Emin, 2021, original scientific article

Abstract: Molybdenum diselenide (MoSe2) is an emerging alternative to platinum-group-metal electrocatalysts for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). Herein, the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) approach was demonstrated to be a successful route to grow MoSe2 thin films using colloidal molybdenum nanoparticles (Mo NPs). T

Solvothermal synthesis of iron phosphides and their application for efficient electrocatalytic hydrogen evolution
Takwa Chouki, Manel Machreki, Saim Emin, 2020, original scientific article

Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we present a solvothermal synthesis of iron phosphide electrocatalysts using a triphenylphosphine (TPP) precursor. The synthetic protocol generates Fe2P phase at 300 °C and FeP phase at 350 °C. To enhance the catalytic activities of obtained iron phosphide particles heat-treatments were carried out at elevated temperatures. Annealing at 500 °C under reductive atmosphere induced structural changes in the samples: (i) Fe2P provided a pure Fe3P phase (Fe3P−500 °C) and (ii) FeP transformed into a mixture of iron phosphide phases (Fe2P/FeP−500 °C). Pure Fe2P films was prepared under argon atmosphere at 450 °C (Fe2P−450 °C). The electrocatalytic activities of heat-treated Fe2P−450 °C, Fe3P−500 °C, and Fe2P/FeP−500 °C catalysts were studied for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in 0.5 M H2SO4. The HER activities of the iron phosphide catalyst were found to be phase dependent. The lowest electrode potential of 110 mV vs. a reversible hydrogen electrode (RHE) at 10 mA cm−2 was achieved with Fe2P/FeP−500 °C catalyst.
